Saskatoon berries - Misâskwatômina - Serviceberries - Juneberries - Sugar plum (Amelanchier alnifolia) are delicious berries from the prairies that have a similar taste to wild blueberries with a distinctive cherry almond flavour. In areas where they are abundant, they are often used fresh in pies. Slow cooked, they gain a unique almond-like after taste. They are most often used like other berries, consumed directly on toast, ice cream, yogurt, or added to fruit salads. Saskatoon berries have a thicker skin than other purple fruit berries and as a result there is more texture to saskatoon compote than other berries such as blueberries and haskap.

Forbes Wild Foods is a Canadian company that proudly supplies wild, hand-picked foods to restaurants; farmers markets; hotels; gift, food, and health stores; and to individual customers via our online store. All of our foods are sustainably harvested from the Canadian wilderness by trained, knowledgeable pickers. Our suppliers practice progressive harvesting methods -- ones that are both sustainable for its neighbouring plant species and surrounding ecosystem; and for the pickers themselves, whose livelihood is supported by a thriving source of wild foods.

Our specialized pickers (consisting of Indigenous people, women, youth, retirees, farmers, and professional foragers) are usually residents of rural or remote communities who respect the lands that support them. Only those wild foods that grow in great abundance and whose survival is not in danger are considered for harvest. Forbes Wild Foods also works with regional and northern wild food producers to help propagate rare wild food plants by reintroducing them to lands that need remedial attention, such as overgrazed woodlots and pastures.
